Post Time:Apr 24,2019Classify:Industry NewsView:974

Schott is to invest BRL 50 million ($9.7 million) in its pharmaceutical tubing production in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in the next two years. 

The investment covers the latest update of the company’s perfeXion (pictured) on-line inspection system process as well as implementing modern production technology in glass-melting furnaces. 

It follows a previous five-year BRL 80 million ($15.6 million) modernisation project.

“In line with our zero defect approach, we already established a new era in quality processing for pharmaceutical tubing with perfeXion.

"Now, the investment allows us to further optimise the machinery to continue setting new standards in the pharma glass industry," said Joerg Wagner, Technical Director of Schott Brazil Division Vitrofarma.
